Tennis Elbow and Repetitive Strain Injury Compensation Claims

With Black Friday and Christmas just around the corner, shops are getting ready for a huge influx in orders from keen Christmas shoppers and people taking advantage of the low-cost deals on offer.

But though it might be an exciting time of year for some, increased demand means an increased workload for both shop staff and delivery drivers. Unfortunately, this also means an increased risk of injuries such as tennis elbow and repetitive strain injury (RSI).

RSI is the umbrella term we use to describe muscle, nerve and tendon damage that has been caused by overuse or by too many repetitive movements. The most affected areas tend to be the neck and shoulders, wrists and hands and forearms and elbows; which is why the term ‘Tennis Elbow’ is often used to describe the condition.

The symptoms of RSI can include:

  • Tenderness or aching of your upper forearms.
  • Pain or throbbing when lifting or bending your arms, or when twisting your forearm (for example; when turning a door handle or opening a jar.)
  • Cramps or pain when holding smaller objects, such as a pen or mobile phone.
  • Stiffness, weakness or throbbing in the forearms, neck, wrist or hands.
  • Regular tingling or numbness

Long-distance delivery drivers, in particular, are at risk of developing RSI and related conditions, due to the nature of their work. As well as the repetitive nature of driving for long periods at a time, the tasks associated with the job; such as loading and unloading goods, can cause serious neck back and shoulder problems.

Similarly, shop staff are also at risk of developing RSI. Unloading stock, re stacking shelves and rails and constant till use can all cause long term issues – especially during busy periods such as Black Friday and Christmas.

If you are concerned that you are beginning to develop the symptoms of RSI or Tennis Elbow, and you think it could be related to your line of work, it is important that you discuss the problem with your employer or occupational health representative as it may be possible to modify your tasks to improve your symptoms.

However, if you feel that your symptoms are getting worse, or are affecting your ability to do your job to a high standard; you may be eligible to claim for repetitive strain injury compensation.

At Hampson Hughes Solicitors, we understand that claiming against your employer can be unnerving, which is why our friendly team of expert lawyers will walk you through the process step by step.
